A wide field of candidates has turned in paperwork to run for the Oro Valley Town Council and for mayor.

In the final tally, seven hopefuls for council and three for mayor have stepped forward.

The council will have three seats up for grabs in March, with the terms of Paula Abbott, K.C. Carter and Al Kunisch all expiring. Abbott, who resigned her position in November, won't be running for re-election. Kunisch also has decided not to seek his council seat. That leaves Carter the lone council veteran seeking another term.

Don Emmons, Mark Finchem, Joe Hornat, Matthew Rabb, Mary Snider and Lou Waters also have completed paperwork to run for council.

Mayor Paul Loomis also is up for re-election. He seeks a fourth term as mayor. He faces two challengers, Satish Hiremath and Michael Zinkin.

The primary election is scheduled for March 9. The general election is planned for May 18.

Early voting in the primary election begins Feb. 4, with the voter registration deadline set for Feb. 8.

Early voting in the general election begins April 15. The voter registration deadline is April 19.

New council members take office at the June 2 council meeting.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
